Cayman feel the Thames they said and we’ll bring you the world.
Brunch? Well, seeing our Caribbean chums are hosting this’ll be of the liquid variety.
Which means Mixologist Maya’s creations.
All of which comes in handy for their three (count them) carnivals.
Turtley cool carnival
After all they were here long before any of us and keep coming back to nest and leave their imprints in the sand.
Which in the local tongue is Batabano.
Watch out for Mudslides
I get my tongue around the Seaside Sip, a variation on the Hot Toddy and welcoming in the autumn breeze up on deck.
The sip being is a Seven Seas rum base with fever-grass tea, thyme-infused honey and a hint of zesty lemon juice.
Warmed by your first Seaside Sip it would be rude, of course, not to accept our hosts’ offer of their take on Caymanian staple, the Mudslide.
The Shots Fired blends Gun Bay vodka, made on the island, almond milk, Caymanian coffee and a chocolate syrup.
It’s strong, so that’ll be the recoil you’ll feel.
Your captain speaking
Nor are they the only shots offered on Will with the crew offering clay pigeon outings too.
Though wisely as we were well into the cocktails by now, they didn’t put any rifles in our hands.
Although the captain did allow me to steer the wheel… for show you understand.
As even the Thames isn’t wide enough for my driving even before I hit the cocktails.
So the invitation to Cayman feel the Thames accepted and delivered it’s full steam ahead to a day of appointments.
I’m just careful of breathing too closely to the exhibitors for fear of knocking them out.
MEET YOU ON THE ROAD
